Volkswagen's redesigned-for-2013 CC sedan will start just above $30,000 when it goes on sale this spring. It costs almost $2,000 more than the 2012 model's $28,515 base price.
Updates for the new model year include revised styling that's more aligned with the redesigned Jetta and Passat siblings; a new bench seat that allows for three passengers in back; and LED taillights. The CC is available in front- or all-wheel drive, and its powertrains also carry over for 2013: both the 200-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 280-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 remain available.
Two new models join the CC's roster for 2013. The 2.0T Sport Plus will slot above the base 2.0T Sport model and feature LED daytime running lights, adaptive headlights, specific 18-inch wheels and the base navigation system. Navigation previously was available only on the Lux trim.
The new VR6 Lux trim slots below the 2.0T Lux and adds a headlight washer system with heated nozzles, backup camera, upgraded navigation system with 6.6-inch touch-screen, leather seats with memory function and specific 18-inch wheels.
2.0T Sport, 2.0T Sport Plus, 2.0T Lux, VR6 Lux, VR6 4Motion Executive models are available for 2013. The starting cost of each version is detailed below. Pricing for the sport-themed 2.0T R-Line model will be released closer to the vehicle’s launch in early 2013.
